Assist Older Adults with Gardening and outdoor work

Open Opportunity

About

A Little Help is looking for volunteers that would be interested in helping an older adult member of A Little Help with gardening and yardwork. Grass is green...flowers are blooming...and yardwork is waiting! Pitch in to help an older adult household keep up their curb appeal. Lend a hand with planting, weeding, mulching and raking. Bring the kids to help pick up sticks. As more individuals choose to “age in place” as they get older, some older adults find the maintenance to be overwhelming, and yet, property owners need to keep their properties safe and well-maintained to follow city regulations. Yardwork can pose unique challenges because it may require strength, endurance, or working when it’s hot outside. Lending a helping hand can go a long way to help some older adults keep up with having a safer and more secure home environment where they can connect with nature and take refuge. Your visit may even keep them from feeling isolated and depressed and provide them a sense of community that empowers and energizes them. 

Volunteering with A Little Help is very flexible and accommodating with whatever else you have going on in your life - simply select opportunities online on A Little Help’s Help Connect Volunteer Portal that match your interests and available time. Be Kind - Feel Great!
